Editing a newspaper is a constant battle of fitting an overwhelming number of stories into a finite space. News, views and information all compete and we fit them in like a jigsaw based on our extensive news judgment.
But are you getting enough of what you want, and need, to read?
Our reader survey gives you the opportunity to tell us what you like, and do not like, to read and have a real say in the direction our newspaper coverage takes.
It’s a unique way you can have a voice in the coverage of your local community newspaper.
All you have to do is go to www.mycommunitypanel.com.au and follow the instructions to register, then rank the things that matter most to you.
It might take you five minutes to help us set the agenda for your local community newspaper and keep it relevant to you.
And as a reward, for completing the survey you will go in a draw to win one of 10 fabulous overnight stays at Crown Towers Perth. Each prize also includes valet parking, breakfast at Epicurean and access to leisure facilities.
There is also the opportunity to register for a reader panel where we will ask you for an ongoing contribution, because your opinions matter to us.
We will offer ongoing rewards for reader panel members, so by joining you will have the chance to win other great prizes every time you complete a survey. Rick Lee Editor, Southern Gazette
